On tap in Beaverton. Pours a clear copper color with a large white head. A nice nose of caramel and pine. The flavor is a clear easygoing light IPA with low bitterness, dry, caramel, pine and light lemon. Enjoyable.

Bomber. Weak. Not sure how they call this an IPA. Cheap...you get what you pay for here. I’d rather spend another $.60 and get a hop stoopid or something with flavor.

22 oz bottle. Amber with a creamy beige head. Aroma of biscuit dough, citrus and flowers. Malty flavor, toast and bread with a medium to low bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation and a slightly syrupy mouth feel. Decent IPA, bit sweet and low on hops but still alright.

10 ounce sample on tap at Bailey’s Taproom in Portland, OR. Primarily floral, earthy hoppiness present in the nose with some slight sweetness. Not too much else happening here. Fairly pedestrian. Transparent golden body with a frothy off-white head and solid lacing. Starts with orange citrus notes and rather juicy. Has a little huskiness in the middle before it finishes with a moderate floral and earthy bitterness. A milder IPA that is well-balanced and serviceable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber courtesy of hayduke. Hazy/cloudy golden orange pour. There was a thick white head and a nice sticky laciness. The nose is lightly spicy with a little bit of soft bready malts. A bit of light spicy and some soft yeasty doughiness. There is a bit of lightly toasted character that likely shouldn’t be there. It has an unusual minerally bitterness but also an odd sticky sweetness. Meh... I’m not really a fan of this one.
